June 21 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Howl! Happening is delighted to present a screening of the 2010 feature length documentary Beautiful Darling: The Life and Times of Candy Darling, Andy Warhol Superstar. Part of our celebrations for Pride Month, the screening of Beautiful Darling honors the legacy of the transsexual icon who was part of the clique of personalities promoted by Andy Warhol and a muse for the Velvet Underground. Born in 1944 in Forest Hills, Queens, Candy Darling captured the hearts and minds of many with her beauty and talent as illustrated by the devotion she inspired from Andy Warhol, Tennessee Williams and Truman Capote.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with writer and critic Cynthia Carr, director Jamie Rasin and writer and actor George Abagnalo.

Cynthia Carr is the author, most recently, of Fire in the Belly: The Life and Times of David Wojnarowicz. She is at work on a biography of Candy Darling.

James Rasin is a filmmaker and digital artist. His latest piece is the 4k installation DRIVE – a 57-hour, 3,000-mile, 1-shot film capturing the iconic cross-country drive from New York to L.A. in a single continuous take.

George Abagnalo is an actor and writer, known for Bad (1977), Women in Revolt (1971) and Beautiful Darling (2010).
